Deadly Premonition PS3's pre-order bonuses detailed

From releasing into obscurity to retail-specific pre-order bonuses!

Deadly Premonition: Director's Cut comes out next month (4/30) on PS3 and it will offer retailer-specific pre-order bonuses, which is a little bit of an oddity for a game getting its unexpected second life. Almost takes the sting out of retailer-specific pre-order bonuses being a stupid and annoying trend.

GameStop will offer US pre-orderers the Espresso Suit, which triples your tolerance toward hunger and tiredness, two stats Deadly Premonition requires you to manage, lest York succumb to fatigue. Amazon (US or UK) is offering a Field Ops Suit meant to up health and attack power. Shopto (UK) will have the Transporter Pack, which is three souped up cars and the amazing-sounding Chibi Chibi Bang Bang Car skin.

Anyone put off by the roughness of the original game should know a few things: visuals have been updated and most textures redone; the game controls a bit less clunky, a bit more like a Resident Evil-style third person shooter; and there's a giant, expandable map that overlays the screen while you're walking around or driving, allowing for easier navigation.  It's good stuff.
